Foot by Foot


Foot by foot
We all walk fine lines
everyday
everywhere
anyday
anyw here
today
finer, finer, finer
togeather we walk
march with hands held
foot by foot
the hungry hands of hell
reaching up to us
from the bottom below
to fall is to fall
soul in chains
the chains shackled
from one life to another
foot by foot
foot by foot
foot by foot
foot by foot
over and over
one falls and we all fall
we all fall
our time is gone
our time is done
their time has come
our time is gone
foot by foot
they enter
to the tight rope
from our wombs
foot by foot
they all walk fine lines
foot by foot

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
